Voters in Massachusetts this week elected Republican Scott Brown to the Senate, ending the Democratic supermajority. And even if you're a liberal, you've got to agree the Democrats were a little out of control with all that power. In just a short time they managed to push through universal health care, gay marriage, legalized marijuana, mandatory abortion clinics in every church, putting Che Guevara on Mt. Rushmore and replacing the Second Amendment with a recipe for organic vegan arugula casserole. Thanks for reining them in, Massachusetts.
